    Nero AAC question.

    Hi there,

    i made a lot of searches here on forums and through the web with my friend Google, but i cannot make my mind up (too much information make confusion sometimes).

    I got a HUGE collection of CD (almost 2000) in my collection, 90% classical ones.

    So, I would like to know how NERO AAC encoder provided for DBPoweramp competes against itunes one, because it will save me a LOT of time to do my conversions

    CD -> Apple Lossless on HDD (backup of CD) -> m4a for my 160 GB ipod.

    I usually rip to 256 VBR in itunes, and see i go up to 400 in NERO.

    So, am I able to acheive itunes ancoding quality for my m4a with Nero encoder, or for quality sake, i must stick with itunes???


    Thanks to steer me to the right direction.

    Hope my low english skills make me understood by everyone.

    Cheers from France.

    Tapotio.

    If you stick with dMC, you get it's excellent secure ripping and AccurateRip. Also, you can use the "Multi-Encoder" to rip your CD once and make an ALAC (Apple Lossless) and m4a file simultaneously, saving you re-encoding time.

    As for quality, I believe the nero encoder provides iTunes quality.

    Hi Spoon,

    first thanks for LtData for his valuable advices.

    I did find it after searching more.

    Spoon, can you help here for:

    - answering the question about Nero quality AAC encoder. Can you confirm LtData opinion?

    - can you steer me to a tutorial to use itunes encoder and the parameters for 256 or 320 kps VBR encoding if i choose to stick with itunes without using it directly (for the multi-encoder option)?

    - a wish : can't DBpoweramp remember custom values entered in tags for further use, preventing me to enter those personal values each time (exemple, classique instead of classical as it is the french traduction)


    Thanks for all.

    Kind regards,
    tapotio.
